Rogers Online Protection is a smart, all-in-one online security package that automatically safeguards you and your family online, so you don't have to think about it.

To make the answer a bit clearer, Rogers Online Protection is a group of applications that can be used to protect your computer. It includes an Anti-virus and Anti-spyware program that provides protection against attacks from viruses including Trojan horses and worms and detects and quarantines spyware before it harms your computer, a Firewall application that prevents unauthorized users from accessing your computer, Parental Controls that safeguard your children from inappropriate online content, Privacy Controls that manage your online privacy by clearing cookies, browser cache and history. It is a real-time application that automatically protects you when you are online and it stays up to date by auto-updating.

 

Note that Rogers Online Protection is an application similar to Norton 360, Symantec Online Protection, or McAfee Total Protection or McAfee Internet Security. If you already have one of these, you really don't need ROP, but if you don't have any of these, the advantage to ROP is that it is free as long as you are a Rogers customer.

 

***Update***

 

Thank you for your clarification, sleaf62 ! I would just add that currently we offer two Rogers Online Protection packages:

 

1.Rogers Online Protection Basic which is free, and includes Antivirus, Antispyware, Parental Controls

2. Rogers Online Protection Premium which is $4.99/month, and includes Firewall, Privacy Controls, Safepay and Search Advisor in addition to all of the features of the free Online Protection Basic.  For example, Safepay is a cool feature that allows you to open sensitive webpages such as banking or online shopping sites in a separate browser which runs in a safe environment, known as a sandbox, with a virtual keyboard for additional protection.This product prevents browser-based threats from exploiting vulnerabilities to gain control of your system. You can use Safepay when making online payments, visiting banking sites or even web pages you suspect may contain malware.

Re: Rogers Online Protection?

Has anyone else noted how much slower the Definitions Updates are these days and how they slow down access to programs?
I fail to understand why some can take 20 minutes or morre and even up to 45 minutes?
Why can't we have the option to download the updates when we want to rather than them being done automatically several times a day.
I don;t line being held 'hostage' while this updating is in progress!!

Dump ROP and get the free Microsoft Security Essentials.It's free, way better, leaner, faster. ROP is based on Norton, known to be a resource drain.

Re: Rogers Online Protection?

There are many who would advise against installing ROP. I know that installing Rogers software has caused me problems in the past - so much so that even Rogers tech support advised me to uninstall!
